Ghaziabad: After “workplace” and “guardian special” vaccination centres, the district administration has now planned to open two special inoculation booths for women. The sites will open next week and residents will have to book slots online before getting the jabs. According to officials, 200 people would be vaccinated at each centre daily.

While one booth will be in trans-Hindon area, the other will be in city area. The exact date and location for the booths are yet to be decided, officials said. Meanwhile, residents welfare associations have been asked to prepare lists of domestic staff employed in housing societies so that they can be inoculated at the special booths, a senior health official.

More “near home” vaccination centres would be set up for elderly and people with special needs and no registration would be required to get jabs at these booths, officials said. Currently, 10 such booths are operational in the four blocks. While two each are in Loni and Muradnagar, there are three in Bhojpur and three in Dasna. The health department has also decided to vaccinate auto rickshaw drivers and street vendors through workplace centres where government employees and media personnel are being inoculated now. “New categories are being added at the government level to vaccinate more people. Once we are done inoculating media personnel and government officials, we will use the booths to inoculate the others,” an official said.

On Friday, Max Hospital, Vaishali, opened a vaccination centre at Cambridge School, Indirapuram. The booth can inoculate 4,000 people daily. Max Hospital has vaccinated over 15,000 residents since last month, officials said. Manav Hospital, Kavi Nagar, has a tie-up with Reliance, and it is inoculating company staff in Noida and Ghaziabad. Columbia Asia Hospital has been carrying out a paid vaccination drive for one week and 400-500 people are being inoculated daily. Yashoda Hospital has also taken permission from the health department to start administering vaccines.
